COLERAINE Rugby Club hosted a festive friendly match between Coleraine Seconds and a Coleraine Exiles Select side on Boxing Day.
Hundreds of spectators turned out to watch the game - and enjoy the opportunity to catch up with old friends who had returned to the town to their families for the festive season. Many friendships were renewed and new ones created.
“The large number of former players looking for a game is a testament to the popularity of such an event and the action was enjoyed by all players as they got rid of the Christmas cobwebs," said a spokesperson.
A lot of good rugby was played and in the end it was a narrow but welcome victory for the Seconds (7-5).
Following the game, there was food and music in the bar and the festivities lasted well into the evening.
